Wow, couple of old threads there from when I used to really post here. I still lurk.

To answer the main question, I think the first NPC we have with the bass solo is 2/24/68? Yet oddly enough I don't think there's a Phil lead in the two March versions we have. It isn't until the mystery reels where we see it really phleshed out. Much lik The Other One and Dark Star, all the early versions of NPC are played more or less without much dynamics, the missing evolution of all three songs, among others, is probably the most tragic era of tape gaps, with all of 1967 a close second, and much of 1970 ranking third. With me, anyway.

As I recall there is a short Phil solo in Anthem (this section of the jam is from 3/17/68, the show from the Download Series) but I don't think it is what the original poster had in mind.
